Estate Planning to Benefit Family or Friends

Foxdale Village Auditorium, State College

The Forget Me Not is a symbol of constancy and friendship and each of us has special people in our lives that we might wish to remember in our estate plans. This session will address items to consider when making lifetime or estate gifts to family members or friends including: children, minor grandchildren, long-time friends, or siblings. Panelists will also speak about special needs trusts which can be employed to make a gift to a family member or friend that is living with a disability and is receiving government benefits.
